just a quick on here, how safe is grape wood to use as drift wood? Also what would be the best way to keep this submerged?
thanks everyone

They sell sandblasted grape vine in my LFS labeled for use in tanks. For whatever that's worth. :roll:

Actually no... I havent been there yet, but now I have a reason... Is there a good selection? Do you have a planted tank? I di get together with vinlo from ontario and Tonyd from ann arbor to do some plant swapping. You should join us sometime....

Id love to do some trading, I set up a planted tank about 2 mo. ago.
asfor jan's fish its a really small fish shop mostly fresh water and a few tanks of salt, but they do carry fresh water sting rays, they look really cool, but I dont think that I could ever care for one properly.
if you head out there on a sunday get there early. I few sundays ago I got out there around noon and had to wait almost two hours for my number to be called. (they run of a number system and they get that busy) most of the time on sundays there will be 50 or so people waiting to get fish. its right off I-94 on telegraph, get off I-94 and head north about a 1/2 mile and its on the right hand side
about a block or two south of jans theres a place called pet station and they have some plants, not always the best plant but they do bundles of 3 plants for 10 dollors.
